Summer really puts me in the picnic mood.
In Korea when people go on picnics they always bring lunch boxes with sushi rolls or rice balls or such, so I love to make those especially in the summer. Got a little fancy this time around and made my rice balls into panda bears! What do you think?
They require a bit of cutting, but that is the only complicated thing about them. For the filling I used Bumble Bee®‘s flavored tunas so you don’t even need to add anything to the tuna, just use it as is; it makes things so easy peasy, nutritious and very convenient. Here I used their jalapeno tuna because hubby loves all things jalapeno, but my personal favorite is the spicy thai chili, that one is serrriously delish guys, it brings rice balls to a whole new level. Recipe and pictorial is below, tell me if you try them out!
